IMPROVING AND EXTENDING THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA REPERTORY. FINAL REPORT.
MOORE, JUNE
THE BASIC AIM OF THIS 1966-67 PROJECT WAS TO ENRICH AS WELL AS EDUCATE THOSE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA STUDENTS WHO WILL BE THE MATURE MUSIC AUDIENCES OF THE FUTURE. A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED OF SUITABLY ARRANGED ORCHESTRA LITERATURE WITHIN THE GRASP OF JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA STUDENTS, AND 64 CORE SELECTIONS WERE MADE. THE MUSIC WAS CLASSIFIED INTO THREE DEGREES OF TECHNICAL CHALLENGE--EASY, MEDIUM, AND DIFFICULT, AND WAS CHOSEN EQUALLY FROM 4 MAIN PERIODS OF COMPOSITION--BAROQUE, CLASSICAL, ROMANTIC, AND 20TH CENTURY. THE SELECTIONS WERE MADE WITH THE COMPOSER FOREMOST IN MIND, THEN THE TECHNICAL CHALLENGES, ARRANGER, AND OVERALL EDUCATIONAL VALUE WERE CONSIDERED. PRE AND POST TESTS INDICATED AN INCREASE IN MUSIC APPRECIATION AND KNOWLEDGE OF MUSIC HISTORY. APPENDICES CONTAIN GLOSSARIES, LISTS OF RESOURCE MATERIALS, AND THE MUSIC TEST USED. RELATED REPORTS ARE RC 002 307, RC 002 308, RC 002 309, AND RC 002 310. (BR)
